Baker at his "coolest". Do not miss this small run limited edition. No compromise on sound here. Rich and warm with a clarity that puts this disc in the upper echelon of reissues 5/5 LPReview

This session, recorded at Studio Pathe-Magellan October 11, 1955 in Paris, is the first of three recordings for the Barclay label between 1955 and 1956. Chet, with Richard "Dick" Twardzik on piano, Jimmy Bond on bass and Peter Littmann on drums, performs the beautiful compositions of Robert L. "Bob" Zieff. A masterpiece!!!

Reissue using the original photos from Jean-Pierre Leloir, remastered from the original master tapes. Limited edition 750 copies 180-gram vinyl pressed by Pallas in Germany.

Founded in 2011 by Fred Thomas, Sam Records presents this first reissue. Our repressings pay tribute to the people the musicians, producers, labels, photographers, graphic artists and sound engineers who created the original recordings that have become enduring legends of 1950s and '60s jazz.

"Baker is relaxed and mellifluous throughout, but the significance of the session comes from the bold playing of Richard Twardzik, a classically trained 24-year-old pianist who gained a reputation for innovation and daring... As physical objects, the Sam Records LPs are gorgeous. The sleeves are authentic copies of the originals, with European-style fold-over seams and crisp, vibrant graphics, and the Pallas-pressed, flat-edge records are gleaming slabs that play with essentially no noise." - Marc Mickelson, The Audio Beat
